3:00 pm
adorable. >> fantastic. we love it. >> that will be it for us today. we're going to share our pizza. "special report" is next. we'll have a slice. new deleted benghazi e-mails. new deleted clinton foundation e-mails and some of the fbi's work product that led to the decision not to charge hillary clinton with a crime. all set to be released in coming days. this is "special report." good evening. welcome to washington. i'm bret baier. when the head of the fbi said he would not recommend charges against hillary clinton over her e-mail scandal, there were a lot of questions. now the public will see some of the raw fbi notes that led to that decision. portions of the fbi report of its investigation will be released very soon. possibly in a day. tonight, we have confirmation
3:01 pm
that at least some of the thousands of e-mails deleted and not turned over to the state department dealt with the issue of benghazi, libya, clearly not falling into the category of personal e-mails. joining us now with new developments, katherine? >> state department is confirming 30 records are among the thousands recovered from the fbi from clenten's server, working to determine the exact number and whether any are duplicates. and more records from the fbi become public. law enforcement sources say portions of the fbi's investigation into hillary clinton's e-mail practices could be released as early as this week, possibly wednesday. but emphasized the review is ongoing. president obama's spokesman said the white house is not involved. >> i've seen those reports and can tell you the white house did not consult with the fbi about that decision or any of the
3:02 pm
other decisions that they've made in terms of handling some of the investigative material. >> reporter: after fbi director james comey's july statement where he recommended against criminal charges -- >> we are expressing to justice our view that no charges are appropriate in this case. >> reporter: media outlet filed freedom of information act request the bureau for public release. the redacted files will likely include the fbi's recommendation against criminal charges, summary of clinton's interview known as 302. while the fbi director said there was no evidence of criminal intent by clinton and her team to move classified information outside government computer networks, fbi files said agents never pressed clinton. >> he didn't go forward with charges because she didn't have any specific criminal intent. i didn't see any questions on that. she said she did it for convenience but i didn't see the follow-up questions in the
3:03 pm
interview i read. >> reporter: the clinton campaign welcomed the files released. before the news became public, fbi director was speaking at a cyber security conference where he joked about avoiding more discussion about the closed national security investigation. >> i would like to take your questions and i'm hoping you're going to think up a question that has nothing to do with secretary clinton's e-mails. >> reporter: then the fbi director addressed increasingly aggressive foreign hackers, targeting political committees and voter registration databases. >> we took very seriously any effort by any actor, including nation states, maybe especially nation states that moves beyond the collection of information about our country and that offers the prospect of an effort to influence the conduct of affairs in our country, whether that's election or something else. >> today, two more democrats joined senate minority leader harry reid, calling on the fbi to investigate alleged connections between the campaign
3:04 pm
and russian interests and whether that including attacks on the democratic committee website. >> and they didn't get a deposition under oath with hillary clinton. the judge said that she had answered questions via e-mail. today judicial watch basically provided those questions. >> judicial watch released 25 questions that they put to mrs. clinton. several are multi-part questions. you can see from the questions that, in some cases, judicial watch appears to already know the answer but they want that to get into the permanent court record and she has until september 29th. of course, she has a debate before then to prepare for. >> the 26th. >> yeah. >> catherine, thank you. >> you're welcome. iran's pattern of defines since it signed the nuclear agreement with the u.s. and its a allies has grown. on the high seas especially. chief washington correspondent
3:05 pm
has our report tonight. >> reporter: after a week in which iranian revolutionary guard corps vessels u.s.s. vessels had to push back an iranian vessel, they've already provoked more naval confrontations this year than in all of 2015. >> it's significant particularly because it shows that post the nuclear deal in the summer of 2015, not only did iran's behavior internationally not get better, having been able to take advantage of the deal, it's gotten worse. >> reporter: in a pentagon briefing, u.s. army general commander of u.s. central command saw nothing terribly amiss. >> we saw some activity here in the last couple of weeks. that's not particularly new. we've seen that over time. i would say that we haven't seen a significant change in their behavior. zblsh the regime has also
3:06 pm
conducted four ballistic missile tests since the nuclear deal was finalized. sund sunday, state-run tv broadcast sites of uranium nuclear enrichment facility. senior u.s. officials downplayed it. >> it's not prohibited under any u.n. security council resolution. it's a defensive system. that doesn't mean we don't have concerns with increased iranian capability and we've expressed those concerns. >> reporter: secretary of state kerry raised hopes that the nuclear deal would lead iran to dial back its nuclear aggression. >> i know a middle east on fire is going to be more manageable with this deal and opens more potential for us to be able to try to deal with those fires. >> reporter: analysts say iran's escalations could relate to the nuclear deal or could reflect internal political dynamic and president obama and his aides are grappling with tough choices they made at the negotiation
3:07 pm
table. >> i don't think the administration is trying to explain away things it didn't expect. i think the administration is explaining things that it had previously discounted as not being consequential, which the rest of the world is second guessing and saying is that really okay for the iranians to do? >> general votel was more demonstrative in his praise of u.s. sailors than he was in criticizing iran, saying u.s. forces were measured in their response to the provocation. >> james, thank you. now to the 2016 campaign, gop nominee, donald trump, is looking to close the gap with hillary clinton in the polls, trying to consolidate republican support and reach out to democratically traditional groups like after rickrican-ame voters. good evening, carl. >> reporter: hi, b rechlt t. he's out here to fund raise
3:08 pm
today. tomorrow an important speech on immigration in phoenix, arizona. trump has a great deal of work to do. the past 3 1/2 week, he has been perceived as sort of going back and forth on the three key cores of his immigration proposal. one, ban on new muslim visitors and immigrants. now it's supposed to be extreme vetting. two, what to do about the wall. he said it would be from the pacific coast, gulf coast, a great wall. now he is acknowledging mountains in places make a wall impractical and perhaps it would have to be technology instead. then what to do about the 11 million undocumented aliens in the country now, whether they need to be all deported or, as he suggested to sean hannity weeks ago that there would be a softening of that. those issues will be answered, to some degree, tomorrow. those who may not choose to self deport, go back to their home nations before coming back to reply for citizenship in this country, if they're not rounded up, a lot of base supporters
3:09 pm
might consider that amnesty. if he were to soften, that might allow him to court the kind of swing voters that often decide presidential elections. bret? >> reaching out to african-american voters, heading to detroit this weekend, planning for a speech there. >> reporter: yeah. that's the second big speech of the week, awful lot riding on it. outreach attempt to appeal to after rake n americans and latinos and hispanics has been quite pronounced in the last month. there will be a meeting on saturday in detroit at the only african-american owned and operated evengangelical network. pastor burns suggesting in a tweet that hillary clinton is taking advantage of black voters and once she gets their votes will forget about them another four years. there was a bit of a backlash. pastor burns has apologized for what he acknowledges was a
3:10 pm
somewhat offensive retweet for hillary clinton in black face but not for the sentiment that she is exploiting african-american votes for political gain and doesn't care about them. that speech on saturday, draegs those evangelical leaders will be a big opportunity and big test for trump yet again. bret? >> thank you. i'm hosting the o'reilly factor tonight and ankkellyanne conway will be on with me. tune in then. extreme measures as she prepares for her first debate with donald trump. meanwhile the democratic candidate is facing a new complication in her effort to divert attention from the evolving scandal involving her interaction with the clinton foundation. senior political correspondent mike emmanuel has that story from lancaster, pennsylvania. >> reporter: growing pressure on the democratic nominee to detach herself from the clinton foundation, this time from an unlikely source. "the new york times" editorial page, which published today, quote, achieving true distance
3:11 pm
from the foundation is not only necessary to ensure its effectiveness. it is an ethical imperative for mrs. clinton. the foundation continues taking heat for the cozy relationship and freak contact between then senior state department official huma abedin and top foundation executive doug band. it is a cause for alarm among many democrats and clenten supporters. abedin is in the headlines due to new sexting allegations involving her husband, disgraced congressman anthony weiner, abedin announced just yesterday she has decided to separate from him. fox has confirmed with the democratic source outside the campaign that the clinton team is seeking insight into donald trump's deepest insecurities, looking at ways for clinton to get under his skin during the first presidential debate. that effort includes consulting with psychologists and co-author of trump's book "art of the
3:12 pm
deal." at least 25 researchers digging into four decades of trump's background, looking for ways to fluster him. an example is when senator marco rubio made this reference back in february to trump's hands, taking him off his game. >> you know what they say about men with small hands. you can't trust them. >> kittenen continues fund-raising in the new york area. her running mate, tim kaine, is make i making way time to come clean. >> it feels like his next big con, next big con. hiding his tax return, hiding his financial bill of health. >> reporter: likely voters in the keystone state has clinton with an eight-point lead over trump, gary johnson at 6% and jill stein at 1%. a solid lead at this stage. but with trump believed to be
3:13 pm
connecting with white working class voters, the clinton camp does not want to take any chances of voters slipping away. political action committee is canceling ad buys in the ohio race, already spent roughly $10 million to support former governor ted strickland's attempts. pulling a plug on a new set of ads set to run next month presumably over poor poll numbers for strickland. this is primary today in florida and arizona. two key battlegrounds in the democratic party effort to retake control of the u.s. senate. jonathan haunts in tempe,
3:14 pm
arizona. we begin with phil keating in miami where democrats are picking a challengeer to encumbent marco rubio and deciding what to do with their high profile but damaged representative. good evening, phil. >> reporter: good evening, bret. in most of florida, just about 45 minutes left until the polls close-up in the panhandle in central time they'll have an extra hour beyond that. rainy day today. didn't help turnout too much on what is historical ly a 40% turnout day in florida. getting national attention and out of state money. debbie wasserman-schultz is in the biggest democratic primary challenge of her political career, coming on the leaked e-mails of the democratic national committee. she is endorsed by hillary clinton. while law professor tim kanova is backed by sanders making for
3:15 pm
a rematch. after having to resign from her dnc chairmanship during the democratic national convention. >> we don't take any money from corporate interests. none of their pacs are super pacs. it leaves us free to represent the people. >> they want to know they have a fighter. they want to know that it's someone that knows their way of life, has been in the community like i have for 30 years. >> patrick murphy is facing off against congressman alex grayson for the senate seat currently held by marco rubio. grayson has been the subject of ethic investigations and leaders urged him to drop out. this morning, rubio refused to say whether he agrees with donald trump that clinton is a bigot. >> hillary clinton has a lot of
3:16 pm
problems. she's corrupt, dishonest. some of the policies that she stands for do harm minority communities. >> call her a bigot, though? >> you'll have to ask the campaign about the terms they use. >> shocked. a lot of people i spoke with were shocked about the support that marco rubio has given to donald trump, perhaps the most racist, bigoted person to ever make it this far. >> polls show both murphy and rubio should comfortably win tonight. in fact, for the past two weeks, both men have been looking past today's primary day, attacking and campaigning against each other, latest quinnipiac poll showing a november matchup with rubio up three points. it will be close, competitive and costly. live to tempe, arizona, and my colleague, jonathan hunt, covering the senator john mccain campaign. >> reporter: senator john mccain voting in his own republican primary today, facing what he
3:17 pm
says is perhaps, quote, the race of my life. his first hurdle, winning the republican nomination against an opponent, kelly ward, who has run to mccain's right, embracing donald trump while mccain attempts to make the top of the ticket a nonissue whenever it's brought up. >> how will it help her? >> i don't think it has an affect much either way. i've been representing the people of arizona many years and they judge me on me and my record. >> ward has also made age an issue, appearing to suggest mccain, who turned 80 on monday, might die in office. she told the website politico last week, quote, i'm a doctor. the life expectancy of the american male is not 86. it's less. she told us today, quote, after four decades in d.c., it's time to honor john mccain's 80th birthday with retirement. still mccain is expected to win
3:18 pm
the nomination today. then the real fight begins. >> i'm confident in victory. it's always been a tough fight, every one i've been in. >> democratic candidate kirkpatrick has made it clear she intends to make donald trump an shall for the senator. >> it's unbelievable to me that trump can say such hateful, racist, insulting things and john mccain still supports him. >> senator mccain's impatience over the number of questions he gets about donald trump is obvious. he walked away from our interview, in fact, when we asked a second trump question. >> i've got to go. >> reporter: but with the republican presidential candidate here tomorrow to deliver his major immigration speech, senator mccain seemingly cannot escape the shadow of the top of the republican ticket.
3:19 pm
his re-election bid may simply come down to whether the mccain brand can trump trump. bret? >> jonathan, thank you. jonathan and phil, with reports on the senate primaries. maine's republican governor is not saying for sure whether he will resign. paul lapage has been under fire since he left a profane voice mail over the subject of racism. he has apologized and said he wants to meet with the lawmaker personally with him. tweet i tweeting, to quote mark twain, the reports of my political demise are greatly exaggerated. khon in honolulu, national weather service issues a hurricane warning for hawaii's big island. category 3 hurricane madeline is

3:23 pm
3:24 pm
one of the big issues in the presidential campaign, of course, is the future of the u.s. supreme court. the winner may be in position to shape the direction of the court for generations. shannon breen reports that president obama has already made an impact on courts that may have an affect on your life. >> the nominees to the lower court are often one of the most important legacies that a president leaves behind. >> in president obama's case, the hundreds of federal judges he has added to the lower courts are already having a concrete impact. the fourth circuit, which sits one level below the supreme court and is headquartered in richmond, virginia, is a primary example. one of the most conservative
3:25 pm
appeallate courts has drifted significantly to the left, out numbering their republican counterparts 2-1, struck down north carolina's voter i.d. law but also ruled in favor of a transgender student, seeking to use bathroom facilities using the student's gender identity rather than biological identity gender. >> that can have a very damaging affect on the american system and the rule of law. >> reporter: the president has successfully seated a total of 329 federal judges during his two terms, all of them lifetime appointments. when he took office only three appeallate courts had more judges than republican appointees. now nine of the 13 circuits do. u.s. supreme court hears 70 to 80 cases a year, making the
3:26 pm
lower courts even more important as they handle hundreds of thousands of cases each year, often representing the final word on critical issues. it's not just the can as they decide. it's how they decide them, crafting the framework for how legal disputes will be handled going forward. >> president obama's nominee to the supreme court, in particular, will be a legacy for him. not just because they might cast more liberal votes than justices that a conservative president would have put on but also the way that they talk about the law. the way they talk about the constitution. >> president obama also worked to remake the dc circuit by forcing through with the help of then senate majority leader harry reid three nominees. reid changed the rules of the senate in order to make that happen. one of the key issues that circuit considers? the use of executive power. bret? >> one of the president's nominees who remains stalled is judge mer arerick garland. the gop may actually change course and give him a hearing?
3:27 pm
>> one gop senator, chuck grassley said if hillary clinton wins the november election, it's possible the senate could actually move on garland's nomination but only if a, quote, large number of senators pressed grassley to do so. bret? >> we'll follow that. shannon, thank you. justice department said it provided the supreme court with err erroneuos information. a follow-up case is scheduled before the court in its next term. the second such instance of this administration giving the court bad information in four years. now to immigration. as carl cameron mentioned, donald trump is set to give a major speech clarifying a policy that was a foundation of his primary victory. how does trump compare to president obama on the issue of immigration reform? you might be surprised. tonight, correspondent kevin corke takes a look from the white house.
3:28 pm
>> on day one, i'm going to begin swiftly removing criminal illegal immigrants from this countr country. >> reporter: if his previous statements are a good at all, his immigration speech wednesday could turn ought to be similar to president obama's stance on the topic. >> we have to get them out. >> that was trump last week. this was the president in 2014. >> that's why we're going to keep focusing enforcement resources on actual threats to our security. felons, not families. >> reporter: both men say ridding the country of criminal illegal immigrants is a top priority and both propose spending more on border security. trump's constant call for a massive wall along the u.s./mks co-border is not supported by the president, both men have been proindependents of adding virtual border security. brushing back the notion that the approaches have much in common. >> is that really far afield
3:29 pm
from what donald trump is saying, if they're a criminal they're going to be out of here? >> i guess it depends on the day you ask. >> reporter: he once supported deportation forces but since has softened his tone, favoring a more nuanced handling of those here illegally. a sale by some advocacy groups for being the deporter in chief. the obama administration has deported more than the sum of all the presidents in history. including last year when 91% were said to have had criminal records. long accusing the administration of cooking the books. analysts say there's a good reason for that. >> nobody believes that the political class, from the president on down, will actually enforce the immigration laws in the future any better than they've been enforced in the past. >> that really is the rub in this issue. bret, you may be issued what's
3:30 pm
hillary clinton's policy on fighting illegal immigration? it mirrors that of the president which is to say she would like to keep the focus on deporting dangerous criminals and terrorists. bret? >> although may issue more executive orders to keep others here. >> that's right. >> kevin, late this afternoon, the president continue d prison commutations. >> 1100 on top of the 24 he granted earlier this month. all told, bret, 673 commutations, more than the ten previous u.s. presidents combined. bret? >> kevin corke live on the north lawn. thank you. secretary of state john kerry is blaming the media for covering terrorism. kerry made the statement during a speech in bangladesh yesterday saying, quote, if you decide one day you're going to be a terrorist and you're willing to kill yourself, you can go out and kill sop people. you can make some noise. perhaps the media would do us
3:31 pm
all a service if they didn't cover it quite as much. people wouldn't know what's going on. more on this quote with the panel. the middle east media research network citing isis reports that the terrorist group's spokesman, abu mohammed al adnani was killed in aleppo. no word on whether that is, in fact, true. human toll of the isis reign of terror. tonight we're getting a glimpse, shocking glimpse of this on dms going atrocity. from our middle east newsroom. >> reporter: the stories and images are haunting. skulls, bones, decomposed bodies. isis executed thousands of people, bulldozing their bodies into ravines, ditches, wherever else they could dump them. associated press investigation documented 72 mass graves in
3:32 pm
iraq and syria with the bodies of anywhere from 5,200 to 15,000 people. six burial sites are on a mountain outside isis' de facto capital of mosul in iraq, where more than 100 bodies were found. this man was one of the few survivors. he saw relatives, neighbors and friends lined up and gunned down. some shot in the head while begging for their lives. >> translator: they kept the men here. many of them were handcuffed. after that, they started taking them over there in group and executed them. they shot them. i could see this from my house. >> reporter: isis capture d and immediately started the genocide of the ysides. peshmergea fighters recaptured the city. that's when they found bodies
3:33 pm
stacked up and bull dozed over. describing the size and scope of the graves. >> this image was taken about a month after the alleged event occurred with the massacre itself. this is now about 190 meters here, 15 meters wide. we can see earth that has been pushed up. >> more than 600 feet long and 50 feet wide. massacres continued, many young women were taken as sex slaves, according to survivor accounts and various human rights groups. a fate of many still unknown. 16 other mass graves have been located but are in areas too dangerous to go into and excavate because of the ongoing violence and the threat of isis. bret? >> john huddy, thank you. big bite out of apple, ordering ireland to collect back taxes from the company. apple and the irish government are appealing.

3:37 pm
once i left the hospital after a dvt blood clot. what about my wife... ...what we're building together... ...and could this happen again? i was given warfarin in the hospital, but wondered, was this the best treatment for me? i spoke to my doctor and she told me about eliquis. eliquis treats dvt and pe blood clots and reduces the risk of them happening again. not only does eliquis treat dvt and pe blood clots. but eliquis also had significantly less major bleeding than the standard treatment. knowing eliquis had both... ...turned around my thinking. don't stop eliquis unless you doctor tells you to. eliquis can cause serious, and in rare cases, fatal bleeding. don't take eliquis if you have an artificial heart valve or abnormal bleeding. if you had a spinal injection while on eliquis call your doctor right away if you have tingling, numbness, or muscle weakness. while taking eliquis, you may bruise more easily... and it may take longer than usual for bleeding to stop. seek immediate medical care for sudden signs of bleeding, like unusual bruising. eliquis may increase your bleeding risk
3:38 pm
if you take certain medicines. tell your doctor about all planned medical or dental procedures. eliquis treats dvt & pe blood clots. plus had less major bleeding. both made switching to eliquis right for me. ask your doctor if it's right for you. we turned over everything that was work related, every single thing. personal stuff, we did not. i had no obligation to do so and did not. all i can tell you is that i turned over every work-related e-mail in my possession. what we turned over were more than 30,000 e-mails that i assumed were already in the government system, bret, because they were sent to state.gov addresses. >> sure but there were some that were just recently discovered and turned over. >> no, that was in the state department not in me. i trned over everything. >> my e-mails are so boring.
3:39 pm
>> yeah. >> i'm embarrassed about that. they're so boring. we've already released, i don't know, 30,000 plus. so what's a few more? >> what's a few more? well, there are many more, thousands more. and they are dealing -- excuse me. they are dealing with things that are clearly not personal, including benghazi and the clinton foundation. and we are finding this out day after day. this, as ""the new york tim "th usually a clear supporter of the democrats, especially in this case, wrote this. when the whe mrs. clinton became secretary of state, the obama administration tried to draw a line between foreign sponsors and her role. new e-mails underscore this effort was, at best, partly successful. the clinton foundation has become a symbol of the clinton's laudible ambitions but also their tangled alliances and
3:40 pm
operational opacity. if mrs. clinton wins it could prove a target for her political adversaries. a true distance from the foundation is not only necessary for its effectiveness but ethical imperative for mrs. clinton. amy stoddard, associate editor and sharyl attkisson, anchor of "sinclair's full measure." you listen to that tape and one after another, i turned everything over. >> you go back and go to her initial press conference at the u.n., she had this granite facade of a cover story. the facts have not only pounded it to rubble but ground it into a fine paste. there is literally not a single factual assertion she has made back then that hasn't proven to be a demonstrable lie. at one point you would think she would want to fire her lawyers.
3:41 pm
they went through with a fine-tooth comb. none of that was true. only thing i haven't been able to find were e-mails about yoga. you figure tens of thos of e-mails that were deleted that were about yoga, some of those would have surfaced. no only the ones about benghazi, the foundation f she wins this will haunt her administration far worse than whitewater ever did her husband. >> people overlook the fact that there was testimony here under oath to congress in which she said some of these very things that have demonstrably proven to be false. >> even that day benghazi, she said i remember that day. she said something, the state department xaptured between 90%, 95% of their e-mails and the state department came out and said they don't know where that number came from, that that's not true. she has, obviously, brought this
3:42 pm
on herself. what she probably thought was legalese that would protect her were a bunch of lies that have all been proven wrong. it's not just another shoe drop but it's raining shoes. democrats are terrified what is coming out this week and days and weeks before the election. >> benghazi e-mails are especially egregious. after all this investigation into benghazi, to hear that there are at least 30, maybe more benghazi e-mails. >> i filed freedom of information act request for those in 2012. still haven't been filled. it's been, what, four years? that's yet another example of freedom of information law at the very least. i also think that when she's talking about -- if "the new york times" is right and there are these troubled entanglements, how does separation now solve that problem if she were to become president? that's water under the bridge.
3:43 pm
she's already taken money through the foundation from domestic and foreign interests that she will be making decisions about if she's president of the united states. i'm not sure how logical it is to say separation now would even solve that. >> is it significant, jonah, that "the new york times" editorial board is out of this? you have to break free of this thing because you're going to screw this whole thing up? >> it is significant and that's one of the things that made me think of whitewater. "new york times" sort of led on whitewater in the early part of the first clinton administration. this is the kind of issue that the "new york times" is genetically incapable of ignoring, pay for play, behind-the-scenes access selling. and i think what they're warning her is, look, you know, we think you're going to win but if you don't drop this, we're going to hound you to death on this. it's a sign of how everybody, every democrat i talk to says they're just terrified of what more is going to come out. hillary clearly seemed to think that these e-mails wouldn't be coming out. >> chelsea still staying at the head almost rubs it in some
3:44 pm
people's faces. >> it was unbelievable. democrats are on the record along with these editorial boards say iing you have to absolutely shoulder it into another foundation so donations can be collected somewhere else, the work can be done somewhere else. detached from the clinton family and announced after that even though they're going to stop taking foreign donations when she's president, but chelsea will stay and the clinton health access initiative, their biggest project, will still be taking foreign money. >> what a separation really would mean. you could say you're separated but what does that mean? they're counting on the public to have this tired, weary feeling, drip, drip about the e-mails and clenten foundation. who is paying that close attention besides us and people watching this show? but i would say the vast majority of people aren't in that deep and they just hear it and they sort of tune it out. and i think they're counting on that. >> i want to turn quickly to the
3:45 pm
trump campaign and the speech coming up tomorrow on immigration. here is jason miller, spokesperson for donald trump. >> what you've seen with mr. trump he has been remarkably consistent in his pledge to end illegal immigration, build a wall, secure our borders, we're going to end sanctuary cities, pass e-verify, uphold the constitution. that's going to make a big difference in this country. >> there's a lot of people who have seen an evolution. trump campaign itself says wait until the speech. >> yeah. we should. let's wait till the speech. earlier this week, we've heard that it may not be a real wall. it may be a digital or virtual wall, which seems even more jeb bush like. maybe the mexicans will pay for this hologram. who knows? the problem, the gamble they're making is that the base isn't going to leave them for anything and he needs a lot more than his base. and this is essentially what my

colleague calls a ricochet pander. he's trying to say nicer on things like immigration and minorities in order to attract essentially more college-educated whites, techly college-educated women. >> monmouth poll out today. clinton with 48% to 40% in the four-way race. other state polls seem to be tightening a bit. some national polls tightening as well. the trend is that clinton has a bit of a lead but it may be softer than it once was after the convention. >> i agree with jonah. obviously, the trump campaign is looking to see where it can pick up some new voters with appeal to minorities, with discussion softening the immigration stance. i agree with you when you said even if you soften immigration, people that want him to be tighter aren't going to go vote for hillary clinton. the question is whether they lose their enthusiasm and don't come out and vote at all. that's where he stands to surprise the projections and confound all the polls if there's a huge turnout of

nonvoters, people that haven't voted in a long time, normally don't vote but are so enthused they might come out to vote and this wouldn't show up in the polls ahead of time. will those people be discouraged? next up, russian hacking and iran provoking. you owned your car for four years. you named it brad. you loved brad. and then you totaled him. you two had been through everything together. two boyfriends, three jobs... you're like nothing can replace brad. then liberty mutual calls... and you break into your happy dance. if you sign up for better car replacement™, we'll pay for a car that's a model year newer with 15,000 fewer miles than your old one. liberty stands with you™. liberty mutual insurance.

we take very seriously any effort by any actor, including nation states, maybe especially nation states that moves beyond the collection of information about our country and that offers the prospect of an effort to influence the conduct of affairs in our country, whether that's an election or something else. >> what i see is this is principally the regime
3:51 pm
leadership trying to exert their influence and authority in the region. and they are trying to do it in provocative ways that are unsafe, unprofessional and really, i think, work against their objectives in the long term here. >> the fbi director talking there about hackers, russian hash hackers believed to be trying to get into the election system here in the u.s. and general votel talking about iran and its provocations in recent days. we're back with the panel. cheryl, in days after the nuclear deal secretary kerry said that the middle east, that is on fire, is going to be more manageable after the nuclear deal because of the nuclear deal than before. and it opens up more opportunity to deal with a tough region. it doesn't seem that that's happened at. in fact, it seems almost opposite. >> i would say it seems as though they are more powerful and more aggressive and we helped. and it was both predictable and predicted by experts who said this would be the case.
3:52 pm
now the obama administration says, of course, in the long run we are going to be much safer because of the deal. a lot of the people felt that wasn't the case and all these provocations i think if you ask the ordinary american they would say makes them feel, if anything, less safe, certainly not more safe. >> a.b., the red flares you are hearing from inside the director about the election and russia. i mean, it seems real. >> it is so frightening and director comey has repeated assertion that it's very, very, taken very seriously. it's no comfort for us that the -- either the federal government or state governments have any ability to protect against this and to handle it and to fix it or mitigate the threat by election day. he just kept telling us in those remarks that it was just very, very concerning and they take these things very seriously. this is truly a frightening prospect. it's obviously would make sense that it would be a goal. and experts say that hackers have the ability, just whether or not they will use
3:53 pm
the ability to do that on election day. >> charles? >> it almost doesn't matter whether they actually hack the elections. all they need to do is sow doubt. that is something that vladimir putin learned a long time ago from the kgb. he wants to create an image that nato is weakening and divided. same thing with elections. remember from with bush in 2000, all the conspiracy theories about the diebold machines and all of that we have donald trump saying if he loses in certain states that it's proof it is rigged. harry reid playing the same game it's proof russians have hacked. the russians don't have to do anything. they are laughing their butts off they have already succeeded in undermining the institution in our country. >> reid letter sent a letter to the fbi director i have recently become concerned that the russian government tampering in presidential election is more extensive than widely known and may include the intent to falsify official election results. senator reid going on the evidence of the direct
3:54 pm
connection between the russian government and donald trump's presidential campaign continues to mount. it's critical for the federal bureau of investigation to use every resource available to the american people have the deserve have full understanding of the facts from a completed investigation before the vote this november. >> i'm suspicious when public officials come out and talk about secrets. this means they want us to know what can we really do about that? why did they make this announcement? i wonder if there is a move to cast that kind of doubt so that on either side, you know, they have done the same thing. so that no matter what the results are, people wonder if the result are legitimate. i worry just as much about internal tampering, there are domestic hackers and people with access to the data that could also tamper it and that's been a concern of experts as well. i think that, too, is a concern. >> more with the panel. one quick topic after the break. ressive girl,

we want to get in this with the panel. secretary of state john kerry and bangladesh speaking about terrorism saying this. quote: no country is immune from terrorism. it's easy to terrorize government and law enforcement have to be correct 24 hours a day, seven days a week 365 day as we're. but if you decide one day you're going to be a taste and you're willing to kill some people can you make some noise. perhaps the media would do us all a service if they didn't cover it quite as much. people wouldn't know what's going on. we're back with the panel. quickly, sheryl? >> i think he meant they would do us all a service, us in the administration that have to answer all those questions. >> a.b.? >> i think he needs to watch the jet lag. i know he is working very hard. he needs some rest. that final sentence was really -- >> do you think that's really the thought like the media shouldn't cover these

things as much as they do? >> what i think is they do get frustrated. >> i have heard president obama say we do give too much time and credence and threat die in car wrecks at a faster rate and they want context and perspective given then they wouldn't know in the final sentence. it's embarrassing. >> i think sheryl's interpretation was exactly right. a bit of a footing slip. helps us a lot. competition in the streets of hormuz. information about russians hacking our elections and president obama announce hing is going to be the guest editor of wired magazine because some priorities you just can't put off. you can't make it up. >> all right, panel. thank you, sheryl, thanks for being here. thanks for inviting us into your home tonight. that is it for "special report," fair, balanced and unafraid. tune in about 1 hour and 30 seconds. i'm hosting for bill o'reilly on the o'reilly factor. we have kellyanne, trump
